Author: Brenna Bowers
Serving: 6 mini sliders
6 mini slider bun, Trader Joe's
1 pound lean ground turkey
dash salt and pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow or white onion, sliced in ¼”
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons honey
8 oz. (1 cup) crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese (or Blue Cheese), divided
¼ cup Greek yogurt

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (or oven to 400 degrees F).

In a small bowl, mix ground turkey, salt and pepper with your hands. Once the ground turkey is evenly mixed, portion into 6 patties. Form the patties between your hands, applying pressure so it will not fall apart on the grill. Place the patties on an oiled, hot grill and cook on either side for about 3-5 minutes. Check that the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees (F). Set aside for assembly.

In a large sauté pan, add the oil and turn onto medium-low heat. Add the onions and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the balsamic vinegar once the onions begin to brown. Simmer the onions until the balsamic is evaporated and the liquid is gone. Stir in the honey and remove from the heat.

Microwave ½ cup of the Gorgonzola crumbles in a small bowl for 30 seconds and stir in Greek yogurt.

Slice the mini slider buns in half. Spread a light layer of the melted Gorgonzola mixture on each bun and top with caramelized balsamic onions, crumbled Gorgonzola, and a slider patty.

Serve hot and enjoy!!!!

Ahead of time:
Grill the patties ahead of time to “rare” and place into the freezer. Prepare the rest of the ingredients and place into the fridge (up to 3 days before the party). 
When ready to serve, bake the patties for about 7 minutes in a 350 degree (F) oven to heat them back up. Continue assembly as stated above.
